Is it just me or are the graph titles broken? They are showing something like 1280x1024 Stock;chart_categories: GPU Core (to see this example go to the Metro 2033 page).

Regardless, I think that nVidia's card here is better then I would have expected, although this could easily be because of the fact that these Palit cards overclock so well lately. Would have been nice to see it get closer to the 5830 to really show its power and justify the price since you can find 5770s going for about $125 on NewEgg after rebates ($140 without).
